“People are just as wonderful as sunsets if you let them be. When I look at a sunset, I don't find myself saying, "Soften the orange a bit on the right hand corner." I don't try to control a sunset. I watch with awe as it unfolds.” (Carl Rogers)

Reasons to be Cheerful (Part Forty Three)

A lot of TLC talking with people about funding as the project progresses. Such a lot that it can feel like a full-time occupation already, which is of course a problem because I must focus on the doctoral work. However, it's amazing fun and great work - and will be my work work after the doctorate is done. Submitting funding bids as soon as bank account set up.

Started a project in the person-centred community to try and get carl rogers' work openly and freely available. People joined in and we seem to have made rather swift progress, so watch this space (or probably another space as I'll create a blog to manage it).

So, what with all of this, I struggled to get any doctoral work done - but did finish foucault discipline and punish, a very important book which changed the way I look at our world... and also finally began to focus on writing Heidegger up, which really only leaves me critical pedagogy and paths to the clearing... a good thing because if all happens as it might with TLC, I'm going to be needed to give maximum focus on the social enterprise from March/April time, just 3 or 4 months, so I'm now aiming at bringing my finish date forward to there. The power of a deadline is a healthy thing, though, and I will do it!

  1. You have achieved quite a lot in such a short period. It seems to me that this is important progress for you. You move only forward.
